Unmanned Aerial Vehicles - Recent Price Trend

Average UAV prices have been declining at an estimated annualized rate of 5.0% in the three years to 2018. Even though demand has intensified over the period, prices have declined as suppliers’ production costs have fallen and drone technology has become cheaper and more cost-efficient.The military has used UAVs for many years, with their use peaking over the past decade during the wars in.

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles - Total Cost of Ownership

The total cost of ownership for UAVs is high. In addition to normal repair and maintenance costs, buyers may need to purchase and continuously charge their units’ batteries. Other components that are not included in the base price of the unit might be required as well, such as ground control equipment and additional software. Like any other aircraft, UAVs require routine maintenance and repair.

About this Report

This report is intended to assist buyers of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), also referred to as drones. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) defines unmanned aerial vehicles as aircraft that are operated without the possibility of human intervention from within or on the aircraft. These machines must have the ability to be controlled remotely or fly autonomously if desired, which is what separates UAVs from recreational radio-controlled aircraft (RCA); they are also generally equipped with cameras and sensors. This report excludes UAVs used in military applications, as well as unmanned vehicles without flight capabilities, such as underwater and road-based vehicles.
